Due to COVID-19, my regularly scheduled appointment was done using my computer. As usual, he took time to listen for any concerns and went over my medications and made sure everything was okay. He submitted a patient follow-up and referral on NextMD right away.

Never go to Dr. Tom! This doctor is the worst. He saw my mother 3 times ever for a skin issue on her lips. Told her it might be cancer. It showed up overnight. Scared her to death. Then without telling her he starts asking her all these weird questions. My mom thought he was crazy and couldn't figure out why he wasn't looking at her skin issue. Come to find out, he diagnosed her with memory loss and sent it in to the DMV to take her license away. There is nothing wrong with her memory!!

All Dr Tom was interested in was hearing himself talk. He ignored everything I told him and basically dismissed me based on my age. His exact words were You're 56; it's not the same as when you were 18. TERRIBLE experience. Doctors need to listen as much as they talk to properly diagnose. Thx to his behavior, I have to see a specialist who will be able to properly diagnose me. #BadMedicine
